It was 2:30o'clock when a well dressed young man eulered the store aud asked to be shown some diamonds. A tray con tinuing a targe number of valuable eel sioues was placed on tne counter before him. He examined a few of the jewels carelully, possibly selecting the most valuable tor the intended theft, and then grabbed a handful, bolted through the door and attempted to mount a saddled horse which be bad left in front of the store as a means of escape. Belore he conld mount Mr. Aitmait had grappled with him, but the thief broke away and drawing a big rovalrer he started on the rnu to escape on'sfoot. By this time' a Urge crowd bad gathered, and its members started. In pursuit crying "stop thief."

He served three years as a drummer boy In tbe war ot 1812, and had drawn a pension lor many years. His oldest son, aged CO years, and his daughter, aged 65, attended the funeral. Senator Cockrcll has promised to spend the week beginning September 2 in various portions of tho southeast, and will mako sevoral spcechos in the interest of the democratic party. It is announced that ho is especially de sirous ot meeting the larmcrs. Now, if Senator Vest will do somo talk ing iu this state before congress meets the political bali will begin to roll. dipt. Owens, ol the British sealer. Black Diamond, has dolled Ihe power ot the United States by sailing with the one American sailor put on board of him by the Rusb to Sake her to Sitka, to Victoria, B. C, instead. Captain Owens' story is as follows: "July 11, we got in a catch of 53 seals. At 4 p. n. we sighted the revenue cutter Rush. She came up to us and ordered us to heave to. We did so. The chief offi cer came aboard and demanded our papers. We refused to give them to him and he then got a screw driver and screwed off the hinges on the locks In the cabin, took Ihe papers and 105 seal skins and all the Indian spears and ten bags of salt. Then he put Johu Hawkins, an able seaman, aboard, with instructions to us not to interfere, as sailing master. Hawkiuj from the start saw it was impossible lo attempt to take charge of affairs in his own hands and consequently lay iu his bnnk nearly the whole lime, not at tempting to interfere." It looks very inch as if Captain Shepherd bad made a tool ot himself. If the Black Dia mond was really violating American waters she should have been taken into port by the Rusb. The episode of the sailing master, Hawkins, was a farce, as uo spirited master of a vessel under such circumstances could be .expected to permit his vessel to be taken into a hostile port. If the skins are American they are captured and confiscated, but the British government will be very clear of ever giving np the Black Dia mond. There may be a little jiugo brag and bluster by the emasculated Mr. Blaine, but tbat will be all. It will amount to nothing. Capt. Shep herd should read his international law and use a little common sense, and not rely too much ou aid from Washington. If this trust and tariff combination continues it wou't be many years till the eastern Insurance aud investment compauies will have to foreclose their mortgages on western farms. Then where will our boasted freedom be? Like Ireland our farmers from owners of tbe boil will have become teuauts of the soil. Let them keep ou sending Interest money east, and Irom $500,000 to $1,000,000 east every year in enhanced prices of manufacturers aud what will be the result? What can it be but bankruptcy for the west to eurich the already rich men of New Eugland? No other country ou earth could have stood the constant drain that the western states have been subjected to. Our men are strong, our soil Is rich, but both are overtaxed, and they will bend aud fail unless relief comes from somewhere. Tbe straw-board makers ot the county have formed a truBt called tbe American Straw-Board Company. Twenty-six mills are embraced in the combination, located In different sec tions of tbe couutry, from Delaware in the east to Illinois and Wisconsin In the west. It also takes in the largest dealers lu straw board in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and Chicago, who practically control) i he trade. The capital stock of the coin- pauy is 6,000,000. Its purchases in clude tbe plants of the twenty-six mills and all porsoual property appertaining thereto. Gon. Joseph E. Johnston is one of the best preserved of Washington's octoge narians. He bas a flue, straight figure, and holds himself erect, sitting or staudiug, riding or walking. He dresses iu the latest fashion and with scrupulous neatness. He is a great walker, aud tramps all over tbe capital, riding very seldom, except in rainy weather. Geu. Johnston was gradual ed from West Point, No. 13 in the class ot 1829, iu whlob Gen. Robert E. Lee stood No. 2. Lord Mayor Sexton, of Dublin, says that Ihe cflicial envelope iu which was enclosed President Harrison's letter iu reply to tbe Dublin corpoiation's ex pressions of sympathy lor the Johns town Bullet er-, born plain truces of having been latnpcied wiih.

Fulling in this, their property ill be ! sequestered and (hey will bo deprived 'of all civil rights. A suit has been eulered agaiift the South Fork Fishing club fur oU,o00 damages lor loss of lile ami property occasioned by the breaking oi the South Fork dam above JoIiiisio.vh May 31. 1 ho suit is brought in pjtts- burg bv tho widow and children of i kunii a. inline, ui ouwwkiy, a ill mil- mer, who lost his lite ui tbe Hurlbtit Johnatown. by the flood. A cyclone in Hungary, Transylvania sd lsukovma swept over several thousand square miles of territory. hundreds or persons were killed, the crops were destroyed, and enor- """ damage was done to houfe and completely ravagsu. j Tho Rev. Father Curley, Director of Georgetown University, vvho died in Washington, 1). C, a few days ago was tho oluleHt living priewt in the Uni ted States, and so far as known, iu Ihe world. He was horn in Koi "iiinion countv. Ireland. October J:, nun. n was tho sou of a builder anil hiipcrin teudent ol mills. In 1HI7 hu mine to this country, and for two years was bookkeeper and c!ei k in u liirsse !i o- cerv store in Philadelphia. He then removed to Frederic, Md , and taught mathematics iu the county academy there. About this time he resolved to become a priest, and studied Latin and French to fit himself for his calling He entered Georgetown College in 1H27 as a novitate, and willi the exception of two years spent in study, iioin IHJ'.I to itt.n, tie remum.: ! at I lie college until his death. For lurly-eiylit years ho was professor ol' philosophy and nat ural science. Ho also took up the study ol botany and achieved quite a reputa tion as a botanist, in lHl be became director ol tho university. To Father Cm ley must be accorded the hoii'ir ol determining tho situation ot the inciid- lati line of Washington. His honora ble and useful lite is an illustration ol of what may be accomplished in the quietest walks of li to by a determined will and a bright intellect. Well, now we are to live always, il we are to believe Dr. Brown -Senuard Take a dog or a lamb and make tea of him, inject the fluid hyperderuiically , aud there you lire y oung again in an hour and seventeen minutes. Theolh crday at Indianapolis Dr. Purmon kit eu a laino and the necessary parts were cut and pounded iu u mortar or thoroughly triturated. Two drachms ol water were added and the preparation carelully tittered. Tho result was a reddish fluid tho elixir. Noah Clark, an old old soldier, broken down And decrepit, was used lor the experiment. In one hour he felt wonderfully better. In four hours ho was rejuvenated twenty-five years. Mayor Crcgier, Congressman Frank Lawler, aud other members of the Chicago rcliof committee, took eighty tons of provisions and supplies to the starving locked-ont coal miners of Spring Valley, HI. There are about 2,000 idle miners in (lie district, mak ing, With their families, about 6,000 persons in need. This is charity and is very commendable, but it would be even more praiseworthy to remove the robber tariff which makes paupers of these people while it makes of tho lord bouiitifuls who arc now doling them out bread millionaires and aristocrats iu a country where the law should give every man au equal chance. The Boulaugisls throw the onus ol their dcleat ou Deputy Turquet, u ho lusisted that (Jen. Boulauger contest over four hundred cantons. They hold that the geueral should have become a candid ite only in districts where his political strength was sufli cient to warrant hope ot success. The government is more nctive than ever in tho work of getting iid ot Boulangist office-holders. The mayors of Reunes, Autraino, and Treigr.ac, all Boulangisls, have been ousted. Tbe man who will thoroughly or ganize a league of democratic clubs iu Mlssotr.i, having a club t "vC-y voting precinct in Ihe state, and with a thorough system ol work and enroll ment, will do more than all tho filing of fifes, aud beating of drums, and waving of flags, flambeaux and flum mery. Organization means work much more than metaphor work without the blare of trumpets or the gaud ot war. Dick Tin pin and Sixteen String Jack had long and apparently success ful careers, but it our memory serves us we are not as well up in that literature as we might be they Uually came to grief. Their prototypes, the trusts of to-day, would do well to contemplate tucir tate aud tremble. People may be egregious fools for a time and tolerate ibem, but sooner or later ibey will wnko up, when woo to the trust it will surely bust. Americau jurisdiction over I3ehriug Sea seems (o be Ihe issue raised by the Black Diamond episode. If the entire sea instead of tho murine league is American t.ater then England will have to back down or light, .but il other rations deny this then Capt. Shepherd will have put his couutry iu a ridiculous attitude, as it will hardly care to tackle "the yarth" even if Jim Blaine is premier bombastes. Noble and Tauner are said to be at loggerheads. Well, wheu thieves lu.ll out honest men sometimes get their aues. ine fellows v. ho pay lor re-ratiug wouldn't much care it these two gentlemen should light a duel with sharp kuives, ia a dark room, across a handkerchief. Their department is a rascally one just now that needs to be cleaned out. When a republican farmer squeals because the twine trust squeezes him he becomes a laughable creature.- Did he not vote to keep up a high tariff to enable one set of men to rob another sol ol men at their sweet will and pleas uroi lie is a pretty fellow to come uow and make wry fares at taking the kind ol medicine which he tixed up for others. The Kausas City Times' idea is that ... the city should build (he sleambout and barge Hue which it thinks are neces sary, huccees even then would depend upon shipments. Plenty of private cttpital can be secured il these can he assured. It is not even necessary lo build. There are plenty ol boats idle now. Ihe thing to do is to organize to assure the Iroights. The British foreign olllce is negotiat ing a commercial treaty with Japan bv which Great Britain surrenders the present judicial privileges of her sub jects iu Japan, in return for which concession the whole interior ot Japan will be opened up to English trade. By a majority of 174 a democrat was elected mayor ol Kraidwood, Ills., where the great strike is in progress, aud where the miners are on the vergo of starvation. Heretofore the town has bren republican by a majority ol 200. Senator I'laM'is endeavoring to people Alaska by depopulating Iceland, which is hecomtHg less mid le-s hnhilahlc Mr. Ilairiso!) is yisiling Sag Harbor and Mrs. JJarriNou Is at Nantucket. The Kansas City Times is crying aloud lor that city to "take command ol rates;" that is, to put steamboats into tho Missouri river and make lower freight charges. Wo wish you bun voywje mutt, ami. We have been all along there. This paper has iiiude that light. Once this writer got au independent boat into the river against the Star Line, which had pooled with the railroads ou both sides it tho river, and it promised well, but something came il is always something where there is opposition to these great cor porations and the independent boat was soon a thing ol the past. It is as true as preaching that in all merchiiii t i lo and agriculture interests il is suici dal to let the water-ways bo whipped out uy me railways, but the trouble is to get shippers to stick to the boats. They say they will, but Ibey won't. Put some good boats to plying the river, and the railroads within Iwo mouths by promising big shippers re bates when navigation is closed, will have them all frozen ouk Ask George Keith. Ask Henry Keith. Ask Capt. Gusolis, or Capt. Silver. They will tell you how it Is. One ot tho most disgusting things we have seen for some lime in the pa pers is tho record of John Sullivan's trip through Mississippi to appear in answer to tho charge of violating the laws of tho state. The journey it is said was au ovation, and "ladies" joined in tbe crush and jam at certaiu station to shower bouquets ol flowers on the iiuro. .mottling could well be in worse taste, to say the least ol it, and the in cident is only au additional proof that there is quite a large per ceuiago ol society which is criminally inclined, aud which is only kept within the ap pearance of virtue and peace by the terrors of tho law. Tho man, however maguiliueul as an animal, was iu urrest for a violation of the st amies of Missis sippi, was in fact a maleiactor, and decent regard lor the majesty of the law should have kept the most emious from exhibiting approval ol his course. Such au incident can only be deplored, and its force broken by the reflection that the participants iu it may not, per haps, have stood quite as well iu their communities as the press would lead us to believe. The steamer Dora bas arrived at San Francisco Irom Behriug Sea, bringing details of the capture ot Ihe British scaler Black Diamond by the United Stales revenue-cutter Richard Rusb. On July 11 the Rusb overtook the Black Diamond and ordered her to heave to. The captain refused to do this. Thereupon the commander of the Rush ordered the guns to be run out, which caused Ihe schooner to heave to. Capt. Shepani ami Lieut. Tuttle boarded the English craft and asked for her papers.
